Dog ate chocolate?

Older cat problems.

Species: Cat
Breed: Tortie? She was a st
Age: 11-15 years
My cat is eating constantly. Every hour or two she cries at me to eat. And she's persistent. Then she has diarrhea quite a few times throughout the day. She coughs a bit, a wet sounding cough. Do you have an idea what this could be? It has been going on for a while.


Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

It sounds like Lou needs to see the vet right away.

She may have hyperthyroidism along with some heart problems.

Your vet will do some blood tests and possibly a chest xray.

If this is hyperthyroidism we may be able to treat it quite easily.

Hope all is well.

Dr. Marie.
